OHAYO

 

Erin Di Fiore is a Tennessee based fiber artist. Prior to her move to Nashville, she spent several years living on Ohayo Mountain in Woodstock, New York. Ohayo, the namesake of this peaceful mountain, was inspired by Erin’s passion to create working with fibers as a medium. Surrounded by the expansive landscape of the Catskills,  she became focused on honing her own aesthetic, embarking on her own small business and striving to create on a daily basis. Erin also teaches Ohayo macramé workshops in the surrounding community and beyond sharing the serenity of this meditative craft.

Erin’s fond memories of fiber art in her childhood home evoke a calming energy and desire for unique surroundings. She now has several of those pieces, one created by her mother, on the walls of her Nashville home. Creative expression was instilled from a young age and fostered throughout her education. During her college years she spent time in London interning with world-renowned textile designer Zandra Rhodes and the Fashion & Textile Museum. Inspired by textiles and always evolving fashion trends, Erin spent more than a decade in New York City working for luxury fashion brands Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs and Reem Acra.
